FTR, PaleMoon was my preferred and default browser for many years - I think I started using it around 2010. I probably saw Corrine mention it somewhere! IE had been my default, but it seemed more and more sites were moving towards W3C standards and away from IE/MS standards. Plus it seemed MS was already beginning to abandon IE. It stopped working right.

A quick search showed that the earliest mention of Pale Moon here at LzD was in March, 2014.  In fact, that was when I switched to it:  Pale Moon Browser

what do you think?
And for the record, I have never, not once, ever had Windows Update reboot my computer while I was using it without warning AND without providing me the opportunity to postpone the reboot.

Plus, Windows 10 has the option to set "Active Hours":

 --   Open Settings.
 --   Click on Update & Security.
 --   Click the Change active hours option.
 --   Specify the time range you're usually working on your device.
 --   Note: The maximum amount of time you can set is 18 hours ...
 --   Click the Save button.

Same error with Pale Moon on Windows 10.

Edit Note:  BTW, I don't have the VLC Plugin installed and Flash is set to always ask.

Pale Moon Version 28.9.0.2 released.  From the announcement at Pale Moon updated to 28.9.0.2 - Pale Moon forum:
Quote
This is a small but critical update to the browser to address various run-time operation issues due to a bug in the browser's start-up code.

If you are currently having issues with the browser handling form history, session restore, or compatibility with various websites, please update.

This is a small bugfix update addressing 2 more important issues in 28.9.0:
  • Fixed an issue with browser migration and initialization code causing various browser run-time problems.
  • Fixed an issue with cache behavior where some users would have trouble having their windows and tabs restored in "soft refresh" mode (see v28.9.0 release notes).  To solve this, we reverted to the previous (pull from cache) mode for now while we investigate the cause.

Linux versions will follow shortly.

Microsoft released cumulative update KB 4541335 with non-security improvements and fixes for Windows 10 Versions 1909 and 1903 today. From the KB Article:

Quote
"Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system and an identical set of system files. As a result, the new features in Windows 10, version 1909 were included in the recent monthly quality update for Windows 10, version 1903 (released October 8, 2019), but are currently in a dormant state. These new features will remain dormant until they are turned on using an enablement package, which is a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that simply activates the Windows 10, version 1909 features.

To reflect this change, the release notes for Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows 10, version 1909 will share an update history page. Each release page will contain a list of addressed issues for both 1903 and 1909 versions. Note that the 1909 version will always contain the fixes for 1903; however, 1903 will not contain the fixes for 1909. This page will provide you with the build numbers for both 1909 and 1903 versions so that it will be easier for support to assist you if you encounter issues.

For more details about the enablement package and how to get the feature update, see the Windows 10, version 1909 delivery options blog."

In addition, Microsoft made the change below and documented in the Windows message center:

Quote
"Timing for upcoming Windows optional C and D releases

We have been evaluating the public health situation, and we understand this is impacting our customers. In response to these challenges we are prioritizing our focus on security updates. Starting in May 2020, we are pausing all optional non-security releases (C and D updates) for all supported versions of Windows client and server products (Windows 10, version 1909 down through Windows Server 2008 SP2).

There is no change to the monthly security updates (B release – Update Tuesday); these will continue as planned to ensure business continuity and to keep our customers protected and productive."

See the KB article for the improvements. To download and install the update, go to Settings -> Update and Security -> Windows Update and select Check for updates. The standalone package for this update is available in the Microsoft Update Catalog. In addition, with Windows Update, the latest SSU KB4541338) will be offered to you automatically. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Here's the solution from the Pale Moon Forum at 28.9.0 and YouTube - Pale Moon forum

With the new PM version, it's the same old YouTube yellow-banner warning.

If anyone's interested, this is the user string I used to get rid of it:
Code: [Select]
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0 (Pale Moon)

Pale Moon version 28.9.0 has been released.  The update is a major development update with new features, changes/fixes as well as security-related fixes.

The update includes DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") updates.  A DiD update is s a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

Update:  To get the update now, select "Help" from the Pale Moon menu at the upper left of the browser window.  Click About Pale Moon and Check for Updates.
